Successful Show!

What a great show we had on June 25.  The Oregon Spirit Chorus joined us for a fabulous evening of a cappella harmony at the awesome Rose Auditorium at South Salem High School.  What a venue!  The brand-new theater was simply spectacular, and performing again in front of a live audience was exactly what we all needed.  Then there were the three quartets who joined the show; the beautiful Happenstance Quartet, four charming ladies who brought their award-winning vocals to the stage, there was Social Insecurity, who shared their top-quality talents with some of the funniest routines imaginable and, of course, the incomparable Midtown Quartet.  The vocals from Midtown were undoubtedly a preview of what could possibly be the next International Champion Quartet next month in Charlotte, N.C.

Audience members were simply buzzing after the show.  It was heartwarming to hear all the positive comments coming from all directions.  With the events of the past couple of years, I’m sure folks were ready to get out and have an evening of entertainment.  Based on the feedback from the audience, we were certainly successful in providing that entertainment last Saturday evening.

We are so very grateful to all who worked so diligently to make Voices In Harmony a reality.  From top to bottom (that’s Tenor to Bass, I guess), everyone should be proud of what we were able to accomplish.  In particular, we sincerely appreciate the work put in by our two directors, Kathy Scheel and Will Fox.  Their tireless guidance and driving force made it possible for us to give our best.  But, most of all, we want to thank our unparalleled audience.  Without them there is no one with whom we can share our love of music.  We are so blessed to have the opportunity to gather and share our harmony.  It’s great to be a Barbershopper!

FESTIVAL OF HARMONY

On Saturday, April 30, 2022 the SenateAires hosted the Division IV Festival/Contest where quartets and choruses were once again in front of an audience doing what they do best – entertaining! The public was invited to this event as both an afternoon of great a cappella harmony, but also as a way of helping out the Marion Polk Food Share by bringing donations of canned goods and foodstuffs to fill those barrels. The audience was treated to more than just great harmony, but the satisfaction of knowing out they were helping a great cause. The quartets and choruses had such a wonderful time entertaining, and the audience found themselves tapping their feet along with the music. All in all, the afternoon was a great success. We especially want to thank those who attended and brought food for our Food Share partner.

Birthday Surprise in July

July 2021 brought with it several surprises – some great, and some that we wish we hadn’t encountered. Extreme heat in the Pacific Northwest, along with an worsening of the Corona Virus pandemic made singing extremely challenging. Neither of those, however, were going to spoil everything. On the upside of the list was a surprise birthday bash for a brand-new nonagenarian named Bob. A retired professor at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, Bob was treated by his lovely wife Marilyn to a great party with family and friends. Also part of the festivities were beautiful harmonies delivered by our own Harmony Road Barbershop Quartet. The birthday boy is seen here enjoying the afternoon and the music delivered by our guys. Happy 90th Birthday, Bob – we can’t wait to come back for your 100th!

National Anthem

Oh Say, Can You See?

After a long stretch of getting together for rehearsals only over the Internet, it was an exciting day for the Oregon SenateAires on May 13, 2021.  We were able to stand together IN PERSON at the ballpark to sing the Star-Spangled Banner for opening day of the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes Baseball Club. This is not the first time we’ve been given this great honor – for several years, we have been privileged to open the Volcanoes’ season singing our National Anthem.  It was wonderful to be able to share our harmony in the Barbershop style with the 1100 fans in attendance.  Baseball history was made as this was the very first game of the all-new Mavericks League and was held in our hometown team’s park. During the 7th inning stretch, we also sang God Bless America for the crowd, and were met with very appreciative comments as we left the field for our seats.  Sharing our hobby with the world is part of the reason we work so hard on our music – and being able to honor our great country and launch another season of our National Pastime made us doubly blessed.

Come Sing With Us!
